We stayed at The Old Parsonage for 4 nights in August 2012. The room was fantastic and the owners showed us round some of the other rooms before the change over to new guests on our final day. The en suites are luxurious and a place to relax in a hot bath or shower at this B&B.
Even the basic double has a place to sit with a table, for a drink, watching a dvd from the extensive dvd library at The Old Parsonage (a real plus if you don't want to stay out late !) or just a chat with your partner. A real bonus compared to a basic double hotel room.
The attention to detail in the decor, the facilities and the style of the place is amazing at The Old Parsonage. Not a trick is missed, so you know exactly what this place is. It is a place for relaxing. There's no skimping on finishing the look and feel of the place here. It's a place that knows what is is and you can see that in all the details. From the king sized bed to the decor, the lovely garden, right down to the bathroom supplies from St Kitts Herbery at nearby Camelford.
The food was done VERY well by 2 good cooks in our hosts, Morag & Margaret. The small honesty bar is very nice and modestly priced for drinks and snacks. And there is a corkscrew if you bring your own wine (no corkage charge !).
No evening meals, but this is not a problem as there are many places just a 10 minute walk away in Boscastle if you want a drink with your meal. Or at the lovely restaurant at Trevigue, 15 minutes' drive away (Thurs, Fri and Sat). Don't bother with the pub at Crackington Haven - if The Old Parsonage is the place for you, the pub there won't be !
To top it off, our hosts Morag and Margaret are lovely & welcoming
A lovely B& to spend a few days in. Much better rooms than a hotel, more relaxing and much better value.
